Operation Amotekun: Afe Babalola strikes Federal Government, says attempts to terminate initiative will fail

On Sunday, January 19, Aare Afe Babalola, a senior Nigerian lawyer/Advocate, said that any attempt by the federal government to kill the Southwest security initiative, Amotekun, would not succeed.

The legal luminary added that according to the 1999 constitution of the federal republic of Nigeria the security project is very legal, reports from The Nation.

The Afe Babalola University owner, Ado-Ekiti, also said the Southwest governors did nothing illegally to bring up the initiative, saying they only responded to the region's desire for security.

Babalola aforesaid that the special operation project may be a sensible answer to the insecurities that are ravaging the region within the past.

He aforesaid that whereas the attorney-general of the federation, Abunakar Malami, supported the unlawfulness of the theme with Article forty five of the constitution, he forgot alternative sections like twenty four and forty that offer clear responsibility on security to the voters.

“The Amotekun outfit is a protective and supportive outfit established by the governors of the Southwest. It has its roots in the 1999 Constitution and the previous constitutions before it – 1960, 1963.

“Section 24 of the constitution provides that ‘it shall be the duty of every citizen to make positive and useful contribution to the advancement, progress and well-being of the community where he resides’. Well-being means security of life and property etc,”he said

Instead of seeking a way of killing the project, he said the federal government should embrace it and applaud those who initiated the initiative.

“If this outfit had been established about 10 years ago, we would not have these issue of kidnapping, killing and other security challenges. we won’t have those who go to the farms to kill people because they would be fished out. That is why the constitution says that such outfit should report to the police.he stamped

“What I have just said is that it is to support the police, support the government in their duty to ensure that there is peace, there is safety of property, safety of lives. It is a good idea. It is belated but it is lawful and constitution,”
